It replaced the previous talk show, Partners with Mel Tiangco, where Mel Tiangco hosted when Jay Sonza ran for election to the Senate of the Philippines under the party, Aksyon Demokratiko, and moved to UNTV 37 as station manager. He later moved to the radio anchor of DZIQ (Radyo Inquirer 990). On August 15, 2010, aside from birthday of Mel Tiangco, the new intro of Mel & Joey is unveiled.
To date, its last episode in the studios was on February 6, 2011. Afterwards, the show has been at a designated venue and that's where the show would take place.
After 6 years on air, GMA decided to cancel it for an unknown reason. The show is well-received (ratings-wise) and has a lot of commercials, so the reason is to give way to a planned talent show that would compete with other rival networks (now as Protégé) and the program to replace by Mind Master for its second season. However Protégé is replacing Mind Master.
The last episode was entitled as "Happy Ending!".
